Battle Arena Toshinden

Rating: 1 Rampage

Based on the smash-hit video games! One year ago, the battle between Master Swordsman Eiji Shinjo and the infamous Gaia was interrupted by agents of the sinister "Organization." Now, someone is hunting down the champions of the Battle Arena. At last, the ultimate battle between the greatest fighters in the world will finally be decided. But if Eiji should lose, his friend, Ellis, will die....

ugh. Somebody find Masami Ohbari and stop him from making any more anime...PLEASE. This is just plain awful. the laughable attempt at a story from the game is actually brought straight into the movie, and as such, it SUCKS. the animation is typical ohbari..big tits, horrible linework, and lots of stupid fights with people who have rubber arms. oh, did I mention how torturous the dubbing was? just avoid it unless you find the MSTed version, in which case, laugh your ass off. Not even remotely recommended.

Available subtitled and dubbed through US Manga Corps.
